Excellent When Smooth
Server (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: learning opportunities, opportunities for advancement, fun atmosphere, respect, belonging, welcoming
Cons: inconsistent pay (derived from tips), emotionally-bound management
Bonefish Grill was one of the first places where I was able to apply what I had learned from my degree. Working with people part of my team and also making a pleasurable experience for our guests at Bonefish Grill really helped me understand the different perspectives that people can gather in a variety of situations. Typically, the servers would come – more... in and we would have a pep talk about what to sell and what the aim of the restaurant's goals were, and we would then go to our tables. On a day where everything went smoothly, everyone would have fun working there, and we would all act as an incredibly efficient family. A completely smooth shift had the managers facilitating teamwork within each co-worker; however, whenever there was any kind of discrepancy from either a manager or from his or her subordinate, disarray would occur. The hardest part about working at Bonefish Grill was when order was not in place, which lead to hardships in the work environment. Yet, when everything was working symbiotically, it was one of the best places to be. – less

Server (Current Employee), Longwood, FLFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: half off the food
Cons: no breaks and unappreciated efforts
This is a great place to work if you just want to make quick easy money. It's a polished casual dining experience with mostly sea food. We recently had a change in the management which I was honestly not completely content with. Co-workers come and go rather quickly. The hardest part of the job would have to be memorizing all of our alcoholic drinks, – more... we have VERY many and they are constantly changing. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the social aspect. I love meeting new people and talking to them and caring for them. My goal is to make sure they have a comfortable and pleasant dining experience with us. – less

Server (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALDecember 5, 2013
Bonefish grill was a great place to work. Meeting people and them making your work day so much better is always a plus when it comes down to places you want to work at. My coworkers were fun to be around although yes sometimes they could get annoying but it was like a family. Management is great they all know you by name and help you get better at whatever – more... you need help with. Overall I would definitely recommend someone to work here if that was their choice. – less

Server (Current Employee), Orlando, FLNovember 18, 2013
Pros: great co-workers and employers, busy, easy to make money
Everything at Bonefish is a team effort, selfishness is not an act that is considered a good quality at this restaurant. All employees are expected to help run each other's food and drinks. Teamwork is extremely important in order to have a gratifying shift! The management team is very helpful and will make it their obligation to fix any problem you – more... may have. All in all working at Bonefish is a very rewarding experience, if you go in to work with the right positive attitude you will not only make money but you will make friends with your co-workers and even the customers! – less
